Re: 2010 Tomato Roundup

From Gastonia, NC, near Charlotte ... this was a sad year for tomatoes. A number succumbed to some kind of wilt, suddenly, in late June ... and it was so hot and rainless here that I couldn't keep the remaining few adequately watered. It was almost too hot and humid to go out and garden, even at 7 am. So sad, sucky weather. Finally am able to get back to gardening these cooler October days - 60 to 70 degrees and sunny and I don't have to bathe in DEET to keep the biting insects away.
